520    "The United States is in the midst of a major demographic 
       shift. In the coming decades, people aged 65 and over will
       make up an increasingly large percentage of the population
       : The ratio of people aged 65+ to people aged 20-64 will 
       rise by 80%. This shift is happening for two reasons: 
       people are living longer, and many couples are choosing to
       have fewer children and to have those children somewhat 
       later in life. The resulting demographic shift will 
       present the nation with economic challenges, both to 
       absorb the costs and to leverage the benefits of an aging 
       population. Aging and the Macroeconomy: Long-Term 
       Implications of an Older Population presents the 
       fundamental factors driving the aging of the U.S. 
       population, as well as its societal implications and 
       likely long-term macroeconomic effects in a global 
       context. The report finds that, while population aging 
       does not pose an insurmountable challenge to the nation, 
       it is imperative that sensible policies are implemented 
       soon to allow companies and households to respond. It 
       offers four practical approaches for preparing resources 
       to support the future consumption of households and for 
       adapting to the new economic landscape"-- Publisher's
